Well defined & universally applicable without limitation. Yes! • Planning, organising, controlling, co-ordinating, book-keeping. • Clear objectives & rules • Easily measured & compared to previous results

What is an Art? • Study primarily concerned with human creativity and social life • Contrasted with scientific or technical functions Yes! • HR, hiring & firing, business ethics, motivation, moral, contentedness. • Must be approached skilfully & sensitively • Not easily measured

CONCLUSION
“Management has got two faces like a coin; on one side it is art and on the other it is science…Science and Art are not mutually exclusive but complementary to each other. Therefore management is both a science and an art.”

INNOVATION
What is innovation? According to Joseph Schumpter,(OECD, 1997, p28):  “Introduction of a new product or a qualitative change in an existing product”  “Process innovation new to an industry”  “The opening of a new market”  “Development of new sources of supply for raw materials or other inputs”  “Changes in industrial organisation” • This links directly with the events industry
